Where Would You Go? | Prompt

We just got our first snow of the season here and our skies are gray and overcast. It’s depressing weather. I’m not a fan of the cold.

So to combat that, let’s take this week’s prompt on a little vacation:

Write about a place you wish you could visit.

Any where. Any time.

Where would you go if you could go right now?

Have fun and link back to this post or leave your post in the comments. All prompt entries will be considered for this year’s magazine.

Game Prompt: Voting

It’s been awhile since we’ve done voting on poetry, so I’m excited to see everyone coming out for their favorites. This voting is ONLY for this week. Remember to share and visit one another’s work. The poet with the highest number of votes will have their poem featured here tomorrow morning and will be entered as a submission for the upcoming magazine issue.

Our prompt this week was to use the word “game,” as the word itself or the theme of it. We had some great entries, so good luck and we’ll see you next Monday with a new prompt.

Vanquishing your demons | Poetry Prompt

It’s getting so close to Halloween! Let’s do a Halloween themed poetry prompt.

Think of a day. A bad day.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be a devastating day that caused you to not leave your house for weeks, but you can get that dark if you like. One that you haven’t quite gotten over yet. Take that day and personify him into some type of ghoul. A monster. A horrible creature.

Avenge yourself against this bad day! And the put the bad thing to rest.

Oh yes and have you heard about our book? It’s kind of a big deal. You can check it out here.

Have fun with this! Don’t forget to backlink to this post so we can check out your writing. Or you can post the poem in the comment section as well.

Can’t wait to read your words!

Wordle Me Murder She Wrote

murder wordleI’ve been on a Murder She Wrote binge on Netflix. You know, like you do. I’ve been seeing mysteries around every corner and murder on the horizon. Of course, today’s prompt reflects that.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Murder She Wrote is a show about a mystery writer, who’s always getting involved in real-life murders. She lives in an idealistic town in New England. The show doesn’t care about things like police procedure or anything remotely realistic. It’s fun filled with the sweet 80’s style and Angela Lansbury played the lead role, Jessica Fletcher. This may have influenced me wanting to be a writer when I was young. Jessica is always getting invited to the best parties. *sigh*

Here are the words that spring to mind:

Murder

Mystery

Lies

The Coast

Writer

Police

New England

Intrigue

Suicide

Money <—-inevitably, the murders are somehow linked to money. Always follow the money.

Be sure to share with us your poem either by linking back to this post or copying it directly into the comments. Can’t wait to read what you come up with.

Hope you have a great week and happy writing!

 

Whose Line Is It? | Poetry Prompt

Instead of a wordle or a description of a scene, this week’s prompt is a little different. Let’s play with a phrase this time. I’ll present to you a line or a phrase that has to be included somewhere in your poem. Be creative and be bold. Here’s the phrase:

“…it was all I ever wanted…”
